Hi,
we're stuck with Eclipse 3.6.2 for now and need to enable SWT.MOZILLA as our browser on Windows for our plugin.
I have seen 32bit XULRunner able to do this on 32bit windows XP and bundled into a plugin.
Is it possible to compile a 64bit XULRunner for Windows?
How was this done for Eclipse 3.7.X on Windows?

Ta,
Mark.

Eclipse 3.7.x does not have this support either. The report for 64-bit
xulrunner support on windows is
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=199660 .

Hi Grant,

Is there any plan to integrate 64 bit xulrunner in SWT?

Thanks,
Andy

Since mozilla.org does not create one of these, the support would have
to be for a 64-bit XULRunner compiled from source. I know there's
someone out there that privately does this and publishes them, but I
don't know how well they work given that the original mozilla source
that they're built from is not expecting to run on Windows with 64-bit
pointers, and is not tested at the source. I also wonder how well
plug-ins would work in it given that IE is the only 64-bit browser that
they would be tested in.

That being said, this topic seems to be coming up more frequently lately
(2GB of addressable space isn't adequate anymore I guess). I would
suggest CC'ing yourself to the linked bug, and I will at least revisit
it (though no promises beyond that) sometime during this cycle.

Thanks for this, at the moment we're detecting the platform and deferring to SWT.NONE for 64 bit Windows and making sure we support at least IE9.

Ta,
Mark.
